    I try to play males as long as I can play a male that is not overly burdened with muscle.

    So when I first played WoW my mage was Human Female, However when my guild server and faction jumped I spawned a harem of male blood elves. My shaman being the sole exception since Blood Elf cannot be Shaman.

    In Everquest I tended to collect high elf males.

    And here in Wildstar my main is still on course to be a male Aurin.

    EVE-Online I do not really count because up until only a year or so ago one did not really have a player avatar, just a face icon and a space ship.(or a moderate collection of space ships XD)

    I'm a woman and I've always played as a woman. It just seems weird playing a male character, maybe it's cause I can't associate with him as well as with the female I guess....

    I am a male and play male characters, but I find that most males I have spoken to who play female toons do so because in a lot of MMO's the females look sexy and there for easier on the eyes. I guess that's a good reason but I just relate more to a hulking, masculine character and/or sneaky, stealthy mercenary type, whichever I'm playing atm.

    I play the character that I think will look the best in armor and with the best animations. Male or female.

    Depends. I am big on animations and how a class feels when in combat. Most female models have better animation the makes do. More fluid I think is the best term.

    Normally I play my main as a male but just all out depends.

    I'm a man and usually play male characters, but only because I find them easier to rp. When I used to play WoW years back, I would always play a female night elf because I thought they looked way cool. It really depends on whether I intend on rping with the character or not, and whether the models look good or not.

    Almost always play male and am a male myself. Nothing against playing females or anything, it just always feels better to me when I have a male avatar.

    Male playing male. I never really understood when my friends deliberately played female characters in an RPG. I don't play on RP servers or anything, but I'm still trying to use my imagination and I really don't want to imagine myself as a female. :cautious:

    Honestly puzzled as to how gender could possibly interact with online entertainment or interactions. Just a fullstop 'does not compute,' in the same way that 'How much tuesday do you eat?' doesn't make any sense.

    I did once have a guy obsessively question me about what gender I was 'really' in an MMO. Kept it up for a good twenty minutes, for reasons that continue to elude me. At first it was entertaining to mock and confuse him, but it got more than a little annoying as he apparently couldn't let it go. Might be worth a psychological study, though, to see how and why obsessive people react to 'gender reveals' online, and how they'd react to misinformation. Though to be honest, it might involve 'reasoning' that I'd find disturbing to know.

    You should add an option for both played.

    I play both male and female characters and I am Male. It has nothing to do with identifying with either sex, just a matter of aesthetics. Some classes/races have better art/armor IMO for a particular sex.

    I really don't identify myself (as in role play, etc) with the character as an extension of myself so I am likely less inclined to be bothered by the sex of the character itself.

    I'm a girl and I've always played female characters. I just cannot get into playing a male, I fashion my character to be like myself and playing a guy is just.. not happening lol

    That's a nice euphemism for "I like staring at female butts rather than male butts."

    Don't worry, I'm sure the vast majority of female Aurin will be male players. As the original W* flick suggested, that's just what some people are "into."

    The only female character I've played recently in an MMO is a female Charr in Guild Wars 2. I'm a strange person.

    You missed the option for playing both, or you could have worded it for preference.
    I do like to play females for several reasons.
    The nice to watch reason is big, I also find a girl kicking buttocks is cooler than a guy doing the same :D
    I do create characters though, and I tend to like a tank character to be big, so I go for a large male, while a fast dogging character female, or just based on a character idea.

    Yup, needs an either/or option. Since I typically fiddle for 30+ mins making my Main until I get something I love, it ironically often turns out to be female, and then most alt's become male. Strange.

    I feel uncomfortable as a female character player.

    therefore I play a male
